Breast Augmentation Surgery Is Not A Frivolous Procedure

For many years now, breast augmentation surgery has been one of the top two most common cosmetic procedures that women elect to undergo and the most common in my practice. The level of satisfaction associated with this surgery is around a phenomenal 94% and is only superseded by those undergoing a breast reduction. Why? Because its affects are so important both physically and emotionally. All you have to see are the unrestrained big smiles, excitement and raw enthusiasm that these women display right after surgery to understand the positive impact that breast enlargement surgery has.

A breast augmentation should definitely not be considered to be an unnecessary, frivolous procedure. Fortunately, this sentiment appears to be reflected in peoples’ attitudes now. Today it seems that far fewer family members, husbands, boyfriends, or friends voice their strong opposition to a woman pursuing a breast augmentation – and that is the way it should be. Just like any other plastic surgery procedure, the person considering it knows best how they feel and should base their decision with this in mind and not on the demands of others.

The following heart-felt testimonial of one of my patients perfectly attests to the important impact that a breast enlargement can have one a woman’s psyche and emotions including self-confidence and assuredness, attitude, happiness and self worth. These should never be underestimated.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
